Welcome to Cloisters West. Our tree-lined community, situated in the northwest corner of historic Georgetown, is comprised of one hundred and nine federal-style townhouses built between 1985 and 1988. We are joined on the east by the twenty-nine-townhouse community called The Cloisters of Georgetown.  Although the two communities are separate entities, we are known collectively as The Cloisters.

A private lane, Winfield Lane, runs through Cloisters West and all our homes, except those facing Reservoir Road, have a Winfield Lane address. Access to our community is from 37th Street and Reservoir Road, NW or via 35th Street NW where Winfield Lane T-intersects with 35th Street just south of Reservoir Road. The entrance at 36th Street and Reservoir Road is closed. It is only opened for emergency vehicles. Georgetown University is to our west, and Georgetown Visitation Preparatory is to our south. 

Our community is incorporated as a homeowners association. We share roadways and certain landscaped areas in common. Our official name is the Cloisters West Homeowner's Association (CWHOA). We have a governing board of five members elected from among the homeowners. Our property management company, Gates Hudson Community Management, assists the board.

CW Board Welcomes New Board Members
Posted on Feb 15th, 2018

To the Cloisters West Community:

The CWHOA Board is pleased to announce that two new members have been appointed to the Board, pursuant to Article IV, Section 3 of our Bylaws, to serve out the unexpired terms created by two vacancies.

Sharon Eblaghie Bahador will serve on the Board for the term expiring on June 30, 2018 and Anna Delligatti will serve on the Board for the term expiring on June 30, 2019.

Sharon and her family moved from Christchurch, New Zealand to Washington, DC almost six years ago. They lived in our neighboring community to the east, Cloisters in Georgetown, and loved the area so much that when it was time to move last year, they moved only 10 houses away to Cloisters West.

Sharon is married to Babak Bahador and they have two daughters, Carmel and Ellie. Prior to Board service Sharon has been an active member of our CW Social Committee, the hardworking group that organized our neighborhood Autumn Party and our Holiday Party.

Anna has lived in DC since 2002, after attending law school. She moved with her husband, Paul, and five year old daughter, Eugenia, to Cloisters West last year. Currently, she practices law part-time, and serves as co-president of the Friends of Volta Park Board and as Chair of our CW Projects Committee, which is exploring new mailboxes and enhanced lighting for our community. 

We are pleased to welcome them both to the Board.

The now five-member Board has organized itself along the following lines:

Sonia Crow, President
Arlene Turner, Vice President
Anna Delligatti, Secretary
Paul Ehrhardt, Treasurer
Sharon Eblaghie Bahador, Liaison to the Covenants Committee
